Where Individuality and Differences are Celebrated!

Curriculum

At Great Lakes Academy, we know that children with various Learning Differences, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD or AD/HD can perform as well as others; they just need teachers who know how to reach them. Our curriculum fosters the intellectual, social and emotional growth of students from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
